A tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles. You may need a mini-abdominoplasty or full tummy tuck. To achieve the best possible aesthetic result, we often combine tummy tuck with SlimLipo.

"Compared with the average my patients have much less complications (less than 0,5 %). I think it's because of my precision, thousands of hours spent in the operating room and rigorous pre and post operative care. I will help you achieve full satisfaction and improve your self-esteem."
13th of July 2015 I took abdominoplasty with hips liposuction at the Brandeis Clinic. I was very afraid of the operation because it was my first one. Due to pregnancy I had the sagging belly. My kids were really big, so my maternity belly was twice as big. After my second delivery my skin remained stretched and I also got some stretch marks at the lower part of my stomach. I was very unhappy about it. After a long phase of decision making I finally determined myself to go for a surgery. I am really happy now!

The state of the abdominal wall and overall health of the client must be first evaluated by Petr Hyza M.D. Only than he can recommend the optimal solution (mini-abdominoplasty or full abdominoplasty). Tummy tuck is performed under general anaesthesia, which means some pre-operative tests and examination by a general practitioner are required. The surgery is scheduled for mornings and client must come with an empty stomach.
Tummy tuck itself takes about 2 hours. The surgeon will start removing excess skin and subcutaneous tissue from the abdominal crease upwards - around the navel to the arches of the ribs. During the surgery, it is also possible to correct parted abdominal muscles by sewing them together, strengthening the abdominal wall. Liposuction of the hips may also be performed at the same time. To ensure the scars are as small as possible, wounds are closed with a special subcutaneous absorbable suture.
During the procedure and one or two days afterwards, antibiotics are administered to prevent infection.
Clients are usually hospitalised at Brandeis Clinic for 2 days. The abdominal wall is compressed with an elastic waistband or compression trousers for 5 weeks. Check-ups with doctor are once a week and at least for 2 weeks.
The minimum period of sick leave is 2-4 weeks, depending on the scope of the treatment. Clients should refrain from sports activities for 2 months. Scars from the surgery will be red and stiff to the touch for the first few months, but will gradually fade and soften.
Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) removes excess skin and stretch marks after pregnancy or weight loss. During a tummy tuck the plastic surgeon removes excess abdominal skin and fat, and can also tighten the abdominal wall to correct bulge or diastasis that resulted from pregnancy.
Usually between 30-50% of the abdominal skin is removed. The plastic surgeon has to create a new belly button. Liposuction may be performed in conjunction with a tummy tuck.
Tummy tuck consists of 3 basic steps:
Everyone's recovery is different, the recovery time varies from individual to individual. Immediately after a tummy tuck you will feel tight, swollen, and not be able to stand fully upright.
For most patients, the worst discomfort is the first 2-3 days and it gets better after that. By the end of the second week, you should be walking nearly upright but still feel tight. A recovery after tummy tuck last about 4 weeks. It takes about 4 weeks to get back to usual activities without feeling restricted. Vigorous physical activity is limited for 4-6 weeks. You have to be patient with the healing process because it will take several weeks to months to feel well again. You are to let others take care of you and keep in mind the end result. It takes 6 weeks to build up enough scar tissue that you are no longer relying on the stitches in the muscle to hold things together.
Our surgeons and anesthesiologist reduce pain after surgery effectively and speeds recovery to to keep our patients as comfortable as possible.
If you have a desk job you could be able to return after one week, but it is better if you can manage to take two weeks off for your recovery.
Placement of the tummy tuck scar depends on your abdominal girth, umbilicus position, truncal height, skin tone, skin quality, genetics, skin tension and the presence of stretch marks. With every tummy tuck will come a nice flat tummy and also a scar. The scar is long, but well placed, and hidden in all clothing and bathing suit. The scar will heal and fade with time. Usually by one year however, most scars are fairly well healed and lightened in color. Some scars can even take up to 2 years to lighten. The doctors at the Brandeis Clinic can also use the Palomar Icon laser which is FDA approved for scar reduction.
You are to discuss the position of your incision with your surgeon early in the consultation phase of an abdominoplasty procedure. I inform my patients that most tummy tuck scars are hidden in most styles of swimwear and underwear.
Fibrin Sealant, or fibrin glue, is a unique surgical hemostatic/sealant/adhesive material that is being used with increasing frequency in a variety of surgical situations. Fibrin Sealant (Human) is indicated as an adjunct to hemostasis for use in patients undergoing surgery, when control of bleeding by standard surgical techniques (such as suture, ligature, or cautery) is ineffective or impractical.
A Tummy tuck is one of the most invasive cosmetic procedures and requires a significant amount of time to fully recover. Swelling is a normal part of the healing process. You will see maximum swelling in the first few weeks after surgery. It will start to diminish gradually after the third week. The remaining healing will occur over the next 6 months. During this time can periodic swelling occur, especially at the end of the day.
Factors that can affect post-abdominoplasty swelling:
